Rodri, 23, was presented as a City player on Thursday after completing a transfer from Atletico Madrid.

With a fee worth €70 million (£63m/$79m) the midfielder becomes the most expensive signing in City history, and signed a five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium.

“Maybe they have changed the story. In the last five or six years City have changed the story – not only in Manchester but in England,” he told reporters when asked why City are now an attractive prospect to big-name players.

“I love the City, I love Manchester and it’s becoming more blue!

“I am a lucky guy because I have been playing with lots of teams different kind of playing. The way I play football is close to this team, which is why I chose Manchester City.”
